Twilight Zone: The Movie Reviews

May 2, 2018
Twilight Zone: The Movie fails because it tries to blend the spirit of the TV show into a medium whose spirit has evolved away from subtle storytelling. The result is like trying to merge a Wagner opera with a Debussy sonata.

The problem is not only that the film is divided into four short stories but that each director only gives us a 25% effort.

Plays much like a traditional vaudeville card, what with its tantalizing teaser opening followed by three sketches of increasing quality, all building up to a socko headline act.

The others have a comic strip zeal which makes them intensely watchable, but ultimately it's left to Mad Max wizard Miller to steal the show.

The surprising thing is, the two superstar directors are thoroughly routed by two less-known directors whose previous credits have been horror and action pictures.

Miller [leaves] no doubt that he was the finest stylist to emerge in the early 80s, with a sense of narrative rhythm linked to visual development that is wholly original and ravishing.
